Program Overview

The College of Architecture offers an interdisciplinary program in Barcelona, Spain. Located in the Spanish region of Catalunya, Barcelona is an exciting city with a long history of innovation in building construction and design. Rich in historic sites, Barcelona also offers a large number of contemporary buildings that merit study. From Barcelona it is possible to travel to a large number of European destinations by making use of its centrally located train station or its state-of-the-art airport.

The semester-long programs provide students an opportunity to enjoy one of the cultural capitals of Europe while taking courses satisfying undergraduate and graduate curriculum requirements. Spanish language instruction is part of the curriculum, though courses are taught in English.

While studio work usually concentrates on issues of contemporary design, construction and planning, travel to Spanish sites and buildings of historic significance is an integral part of the program. Accommodations are in student dormitory facilities in the city or apartments equipped with cooking facilities.
